Hello Stencil Lovers!
Janet here from Happy Reminders!
I wanted to show you what I have been doing with the
exclusive December StencilClub stencils
designed by Mary Beth Shaw.
I started out here with a previously done background...
stencils and washi tape.
The purply gray colors looked like the snow laden clouds
during a recent November snow storm.
I used the larger stencil and the diamond section from the smallest stencil.
This was a fun one.
I had copied 2 of the same drawings on the same TAP paper
and transfered the extra image on to regular gesso covered paper.
I played with layering the medium sized stencil for the background...
And then the diamonds again for some details.
My message to myself is still...Find Your Voice....and Do Art Every Day!
I think the 9x12 stencil in this set makes for a fabulous background.
I love using numbers and letters anyways...so this stencil is awesome!
I started with mod podge and yellow ink, mixed them up
and spread them across the page...one side thicker...to see how it differs.
I love the experiments and the "what if" aspect of art.
Hmmmm...what if I made one side really heavy and one side really thin?
I started with mod podge because it is so ...slippery..
It makes for a different surface for other mediums to grab on to.
I played with drips and inks... putting on...taking off...
I used the 4x4 club stencil from August 2014...love that little crosshatch!
A little too intense...so I wiped some off...
Added a meaningful word...
A great beginning...
I want to add a quote or scripture...not sure what yet...
But it still needed something on the background...
I have been wanting to try this ....
I use this Dictionary Stamp from Stampin' Up often.
I laid the stencil down and stamped over one section of it....
Because it is a Clear-Mount stamp it is flexible and can be pressed onto the stencil.
I have tried wood mount stamps this same way
and it doesn't leave enough of an impression.
Just a nice little touch!
Yes. I am grateful.
Thanks so much for visiting with me today.
I hope you enjoy your StencilClub exclusive stencils.
